5/31/18—Girls Preparatory School (GPS) alumna Taylor P. ’14 was selected to deliver the 2018 valedictory address at her college commencement ceremony. Majoring in chemistry in the Health Professionals Advising Program at College of the Holy Cross, Taylor plans to spend a year in clinical or biomedical research after graduation before pursuing a degree in pediatric medicine.
Taylor was selected as valedictorian from a group of academically outstanding members of her senior class. Each student submitted speeches for consideration, and the Valedictorian Selection Committee—composed of students from the senior class, faculty members, and administrators—reviewed the submissions. The final selection was made by Margaret Freije, Provost and Dean of the College.
“I give so much credit to the influence GPS had on me and how well it prepared me for a successful college experience,” shared Taylor. “I wouldn’t be nearly where I am today without the support of my GPS family.”
